I have been working at BlackBerry full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

BlackBerry pays well and has good benefits. I truly believe that BlackBerry makes a superior product and it is satisfying to be able to contribute to it, even though not everyone sees the value.

Cons

When things were good, it was really good. Now that the company is in decline morale has suffered and it has become a depressing place to be.

    Pros

    * great balance of processes & freedom
    * good pay relative to others in the area
    * people / culture is great

    Cons

    * span of control was too high... too many managers
    * no career growth for most...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    given the current situation the company is in... my advice is to listen to the people from the bottom up... look at what has happened when blind direction from the top is the strategy.
